Important facts about hardwood floors:
- Wood floors are very sensitive, so proper drying is critical
- Wood naturally holds water – up to 10% by volume depending on the type of floor
- Wood can absorb another 5% to 10% by volume without showing any noticeable effects. Within a few days, however, floors that cannot hold the water any longer will expand, causing cupping. Cupping is when the sides of the wood floor swell, creating an uneven surface.
- If not properly treated, mold can grow between floor boards and in the subfloor
